During this time, as the world faces a truly unprecedented situation, please be assured Easterseals is doing everything it can to ensure the health and safety of our clients and employees.
We continue to closely monitor the latest reports and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), state officials, and other leading health organizations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
With that in mind, as changes occur and decisions are made, we will keep you updated regarding the status of our programs. At this time, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily reduce services in our Oral Health, Transportation, Youth Transitional and Adult Day Services. The reduction of services will be from March 23 through April 10. Human Resources Business Partners will work with staff who are affected to identify potential job reassignment or offer assistance with furlough benefits.
Due to the concerns from the COVID-19 outbreak, we are taking preemptive measures to help reduce the risk of exposure. From now until May 30, our events will be postponed unless otherwise stated. We thank you for your patience during this unprecedented situation, and ask that you check back regularly for updates.
We are closely following the public health situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The CDC has shared that for the general public, the immediate health risk from the coronavirus is considered low, but advised everyone to prepare for significant disruptions, and to expect that the disease will spread nationwide. The health and safety of our employees is our top concern so we’re taking that guidance seriously.

NOTE: Supervisors will need to inform the Occupational Health Department (Liz McIntyre or Shauna Tyler) of any staff who are traveling outside of the United States, and to provide the anticipated return to work date. The Occupational Health Department will research and determine if any steps (i.e. quarantine) are needed prior to the staff member returning to work.
Need supplies? Disinfectant wipes; hand sanitizers - gel or wipes based on availability; or disinfectant spray… given the heightened need for these items, and the need to make sure the process is managed as effectively as possible, we’ve established a list of contacts at each location.
